Welcome to the Anatomy of Complications Workshop website.

The Anatomy of Complications Workshop aims to improve the performance of specialist obstetricians and gynaecologists in the area of ‘ the prevention and management of complications in obstetric and gynaecological surgery’.

This two day programme is an intensive, hands-on, practical learning experience conducted in state-of-the-art facilities, in Perth, Western Australia.

This workshop was conceived and developed by Ian Hammond and John Taylor when they recognized that their specialist colleagues in obstetrics and gynaecology were not always comfortable in dealing with inadvertent injury to urological, gastrointestinal and major vascular structures. They believed that a thorough understanding of the surgical anatomy of the pelvis underpins successful and safe clinical practice and this theme is fostered throughout the workshop.
